Extreme Eye Tattoos by Rafael Leão Dias
Among a few things that makes eye tattoos interesting is that oftentimes, they look different from day to day and from image to image. This is in part because of the way the ink is suspended over a nearly white backing and under a transparent “laminate” (unlike a “regular” tattoo, which is mixed into practically opaque tissue underneath a later on of genetics-tinted translucent skin), and in part because the pigment particles are drifting in between these 2 layers, not secured location, and slowly move around due to a range of factors (for example, gravity, pressure from eyelids, or rubbing from fingers).

Rafael by the way is perhaps the most respected eyeball tattoo artist in Brazil, if not the best in South America as a whole, and has actually done numerous fascinating individuals and well-known body modification microstars– for example, Rodrigo Musquito (very first line of photos below, with the full-face skull tattoo), pro Mixed Martial Arts fighter Danver Santos (2nd line of photos listed above), and mega-modded-couple Victor Peralta and Ana Diabolick.
